Breast cancer survivor, Georgie Crawford has posted some pictures to social media from when she was undergoing cancer treatment. Sharing to Instagram she said;
“I don’t think I’ve ever shared this photo before. This is me two years ago on my way to my last chemotherapy session.”
In the picture, Georgie looks as stunning and positive as always and she shared it yesterday as it was supposed to be the 2020 Battle of the Stars event.
This event is in aid of Breast Cancer Ireland and Georgie participated in it herself whilst she was going through treatment;
“Breast Cancer Ireland reached out to me and asked me to dance in their annual Battle of the Stars event that year and the dancing kept me so positive during treatment. It’s one of the best things I ever did. I can still hear the screams of my family as @darraghstokes flew me across the stage.”
The author and podcast host went on to say about her diagnosis; “I never thought this would happen to me or could happen to me. But it did.”
Also adding that she has; “been to the labs, I’ve seen where the money goes and I can tell you that @breastcancerireland chaired by my surgeon Prof. Arnie Hill, are doing everything they can to research a cure for breast cancer and research new drugs.”
She then asked her many followers to instead text CURE to 50300 to give a €4 donation as the “2020 event was due to take place tonight but unfortunately the event has been postponed due to Covid-19.”
